this morning on "world news now" -- tough talk. the two sides dig in without this morning on "world news now" -- tough talk. the two sides dig in without much progress to report in heading off that looming fiscal cliff. >> today the president hits the road to make his case for higher taxes on high-income americans. it's friday, november 30th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now."
2:30 am
good friday morning, everybody. i'm rob nelson. and look which one of our buddies is back for the day. >> you know i love sitting here with you. >> we have a good time always. too much fun actually for friday at 2:00 in the morning. >> friday should always feel good. let's make it fun, why not? >> true. glad to be here. i am sunny hostin. paula faris is on assignment. in a moment we'll see where talks stand in that effort to head off the financial doomsday scenario that everyone is talking about. also ahead, the mystery man captured on a security camera at a maryland store. he appears to be holding a winner powerball ticket. at least that's how he's acting. >> yeah. people don't shake it like that because you've got your twinkie, you know. you're shaking like fwhaus you came into serious cash.
2:31 am
so we'll see if that is indeed one of the winners. also in this half hour, a major player that makes a popular generic medication halts production when tiny bits of glass turn up in their pills. the latest trouble for this big time drug maker. >> can you imagine that? come on. later, vending machines for the 1%. caviar and wine, anyone? some very expensive treats. now just a push of a button away. >> wow. caviar in the vending machine? really? >> chilled. >> i don't know, man. just get your chips, starburst. >> wine, people that can't find a bar. >> there is nothing in the abc vending machine downstairs, except funyuns that expired in 2008. sounds pretty nice about now. first, the big news of the morning, the impasse, continuing impasse on capitol hill. if the latest round of partisan
2:32 am
sniping is any indication, talks on averting the so-called fiscal cliff are going nowhere fast. >> president obama is going into campaign mode to win support for his plan. visiting a pennsylvania toy factory today. the deadline is a month and a day away. as abc's karen travers reports. good morning, karen. >> reporter: good morning, rob. good morning, sunny. yesterday was round two between the obama administration and congressional leaders on capitol hill. and things aren't looking good. basically at this point, both sides have laid out an agenda, and they're waiting for the other side to blink. so much for that brief burst of optimism in washington over the fiscal cliff talks. now republicans and democrats can't even agree on where things stand. >> no substantive progress has been made in the talks. >> and you know there is progress. >> treasury secretary tim geithner sat down with bipartisan congressional leaders to keep pushing for a deal. a top boehner aide said the plan geithner presented is, quote, completely unrealistic. and a top democratic aide said republicans have taken to screaming at them. if no action is taken by
2:33 am
december 31st, 650 billion in cuts to the pentagon and domestic programs and tax increases automatically go into effect. after the meeting, the finger-pointing came quickly. republicans say democrats aren't bringing to the table a plan that include significant cuts to medicare and entitlement programs. >> revenue was only on the table. if they were serious. spending cuts. >> the white house drew its own line in the sand and said tax rates must go up on the top earners, but -- >> the middle-class tax cut should be made permanent. >> president obama stayed out of the fiscal cliff discussions and sat down for lunch with former rival mitt romney. >> i am sure they will or have already compared experiences on the campaign trail. >> today president obama hits the road to push for his plan to avoid the fiscal cliff. but republicans have slammed him
2:34 am
for campaign-style politics that they say just won't get the job done. rob and sunny, back to you. >> can you really imagine that they're not going to reach some sort of deal to avoid the fiscal cliff? i mean that would be so unpopular across the nation. >> you would -- if you can take an action that would solve the problem for 98% of the country and then come back to the debate about the wealthiest 2%, let's get that first chunk done. republicans fear they could lose leverage if they cave in on the middle-class issue. apparently the president, his team has made increased demand here including, a provision now, part of the negotiations where, the congressional control over the debt limit would go away. and congress does not like to have its power take any way. so maybe the white house, upped the ante and played the stronger card and has republicans balking, according to reporting by "the washington post." that's a new element, all of that, that could prove interesting because it's stripping congressional control. and we just had the big debate over the debt ceiling. >> exactly. >> interesting. the clock is ticking, fellows, for sure.
2:35 am
speaking of money, extending jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed could help the economy, but costing the government. according to the congressional budget office report, the benefit extension would add 300,000 jobs to the economy, but the federal price tag would be $30 billion. long-term benefits are set to expire on the 29th of december unless congress approves that extension. now to the newest multimillionaires in the country. the mystery winners of the record breaking powerball jackpot. surveillance video from a gas station in upper marlboro, maryland, may have captured one of the lucky winners apparently as he checked his text. store clerks and customers said the man had all six winning numbers and said he bought it in arizona. after the initial shock, he filled up his tank and left without revealing his identity. abc's alex perez has more from the missouri town where the other winning ticket was sold. >> reporter: at cook's corner cafe, place where everybody knows your name, everyone seem

this morning onwo this morning on "world news now" -- historic vote. a united nations votes overwhelmingly to recognize a palestinian state. >> while the palestinians are celebrating, the u.s. and israel are not. it's friday, november 30th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now."
3:00 am
good morning, everybody. i'm rob nelson. we have a little sunshine on a cloudy day. >> you're so kind. so kind. >> my singing is not too good. thank you for tolerating that. >> i am sunny hostin in for paula faris. we'll explain the impact of the u.n. vote in our top story. huge, huge story. >> big news, yeah. >> breaking developments in the search for powerball winners. i am unfortunately not one of them. >> makes two of us. >> but there's word one of the jackpot winners may be from the washington, d.c., area. we'll explain the exchange that took place last night in a convenience store in maryland. >> fascinating. some detective work going on now from surveillance video. >> because we want to know who won. >> judging by this guy's reaction, you'd think he's sitting on something really nice right now. >> i think so. i think so. >> slowly coming together. you're going to love the video.
3:01 am
stay tuned for that. also this morning, a follow-up to a story that we brought to you about children restrained at school. now we've discovered controversial shock treatments for students, all captured on surveillance cameras. i've got to be honest. i saw this story last night on the evening news and it's hard to watch, and it's hard to imagine that goes on in our schools. >> in our schools. corporal punishment also goes on in some of our schools. something that i always, always am shocked by. >> parents have a lot to say when that video comes on. >> yes, yes. and later this half hour following david beckham's announcement that he is leaving the los angeles pro soccer team, we asked this sexy star athlete what's next. i mean he is still going to be sexy, right? >> are you a beckham fan? >> yes. >> you want to bend it like beckham? first to the shot across the bow, the united nations, an overwhelming vote to legitimize a palestinian state. >> yes. the united states and israel tried to keep it from happening, but in gaza and the west bank this morning, the palestinians
3:02 am
are rejoicing. abc's karen travers has all of the details. >> the voting has been completed. >> reporter: more than 2/3 of the general assembly voted to recognize a palestinian state, prompting applause at the united nations. in gaza, the west bank. it also generated hugs in the unfurling of the palestinian flag in the u.n. chamber, but got very little reaction from the israeli delegation. it grants the palestinians nonmember, nonvoting observer status at the u.n. >> the united nations general assembly is called upon today to issue a birth certificate of the reality of the state of palestine. >> reporter: the move was baiter diplomatic defeat for israel. >> today the palestinians are turning their back on peace. the only way to achieve peace are through agreements that are reached by the parties and not through the u.n., resolutions that completely ignore israel's
3:03 am
vital security and national interests. >> reporter: the united states also opposed the votes saying it short sf circuits negotiations between the two-state solution. >> the palestinian people will wake up tomorrow and find that little about their lives has changed, save that the prospects of a durable peace have only receded. >> reporter: approving the observer status is an international endorsement for establishing a palestinian state in the west bank, gaza strip in east jerusalem, the territories captured by israel in the 1967 mid east war. karen travers, abc news, washington. >> a big shift on the global stage. the "associated press," the lead on their story, i think, said it best. the admonition of palestinian as a nonmek state in the u.n. is far more than a symbolic vote. for the palestinians the move gives them an important boost of international legitimacy in their quest for independence. for israel and key ally, united
3:04 am
states, a diplomatic setback with potentially grave implications. >> i mean absolutely. if you think about it, nine members of the u.n. voted against it. 41 countries abstained. mostly western countries allies of the u.s. in terms tough importance, i think what people need to know that's significant is that the plirchs will now have access to the international criminal court, and that is significant because war crimes and international crime, they now have a place to sort of voice those significant issues. >> all coming on the heels of the recent cease-fire between hamas and israel. so really interesting development here. susan rice, u.n. ambassador had harsh word talk about that later in the show. interesting times. >> interesting times. off. well, there is a desperate search on this morning for an 11-year-old girl with leukemia whose mother walked her out of a hospital in phoenix. doctors fear for the little girl's life because she had a catheter in her heart, and it could get infected if not properly removed. the hospital released these surveillance pictures and is asking for the public's help in
3:05 am
finding the family. >> bizarre story. well, president obama visits a suburban philadelphia toy factory today, hoping to win some public support for his plan to avoid that so-called fiscal cliff. on capitol hill, it's one step forward, five steps back seems like. neither republicans nor democrats seem willing to budge on the issue of tax raises for the wealthiest americans. in fact, the two sides are so far apart, even just days before the deadline, they can't even agree on where the negotiations stand. >> no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. >> but all you have to do is just listen to what's happening out there, and you know there is progress. >> now vice president joe biden weighed in at the grand opening of washington's first costco store, saying the middle-class tax cut should become permanent. well, the president stayed out of the fiscal cliff talks,
3:06 am
instead hosting former rival mitt romney for lunch. the official word is that the two men chatted over turkey, chili and southwestern grilled chicken salad. their conversation focused mostly on how to maintain america's leadership position in the world, and they also pledged to stay in touch. >> no jobs offered. just some friendly chat there. a new federal report says extending jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed could help the economy while costing the government. the congressional budget office report said the benefit extension would add 300,000 jobs to the economy, but the federal price tag would be $30 billion. long-term benefits are set to expire december 29th unless congress approves an extension. hostess got the go-ahead for its bankruptcy selloff plans, wiping out 18,000 jobs along
3:07 am
with it, but twinkies and some of its other famous products will survive. the company says it is in talks with 110 potential buyers in fact. the court also allowing hostess to pay nearly $2 million to 19 executives so they can manage the bankruptcy. ah, got to love those bonuses. well, fast food workers in new york city rallied for higher pay. a day-long wave of walkout at restaurants, including burger king, taco bell, wendy's, and mcdonald's. part of a drive to unionize and demand a living wage. most earn close to the minimum wage. that is just over 7 bucks an hour. the lucky winners of the record powerball drawing remain a mystery this morning, keeping their identities and their newfound wealth under cover. one of the two winning tickets for the $87 million jackpot was sold in dearborn, missouri. and lottery officials there are holding a news conference today to announce who bought it.
3:08 am
one man is claiming on facebook that he is the one. but all we can confirm so far is that the ticket was purchased at a gas station/convenience store just north of kansas city. and the second winning ticket was purchased at gas n go market near scottsdale, arizona, but the ticket holder may be all the way across the country. that's right. this is surveillance video at an exxon station in upper marlboro, maryland. shows a man who purportedly just found out he won. the clerk and several customers say the elated man, who appears to be a construction worker, had all six winning numbers. that's right. all six winning numbers and said he purchased the ticket in arizona. he got a full tank of gas and left. so we still don't know who he is. but he did look really excited. >> yeah, that wasn't, a, ooh, i just won $4 moment. that was a moment, oh, my life just changed. maybe it is him. you love to see that kind of
3:09 am
money not to someone who's already wealthy or won before. >> look at his face. look at his reaction. >> look at it -- oh. oh, i'm coming back and buy every candy bar. >> he shows it. he shows the numbers. >> that's pretty definitive. >> that's pretty significant. one thing i always wondered, why do you have to sort of reveal that you're the winner. see, if i reveal that i'm the winner, i'm going to have all these long-lost cousins. >> pack your bags. according to arizona law, you don't have to go to the press conference and hold the check. but they do release your name in arizona by law and release your name to the neighborhood so people know who you are. and so i just think that is a weird law to me. >> it's weird. >> clearly. it's all right. he's stinking rich now. >> but i'll take the money and lose the anonymity. you're about to see one of the amazing stunts ever. choreographed midair dance between an acrobatic pilot and a skydiver. >> this first move happens quickly.
3:10 am
they position close to each other. woosh, the plane appears to fly between the skydiver's legs. then watch how the two maneuver so the skydiver seems to touch down, yes, on top of the plane. >> oh. >> look at that. >> and perhaps their final most daring stunt, the plane goes into a twisting free fall, and then the pilot pulls up just in time to cross paths with the parachutist as he hits the ground. >> see, personally, me, i enjoy kind of watching that. it was a little disturbing to me, made me uncomfortable, but there's no way that i would really want to be part of that just because -- >> i'm not. >> -- i don't need that adrenaline. i'm high on life. i don't need the, oh, i'm almost going to die. >> congratulations. >> i made it. >> all took place in the skies over the czech republic, another event, sponsored by red bull. just leak the guy -- >> yes. >> -- who did the free fall from how many miles up. so there are braver souls out there than you and i. i'm glad they're alive to tell

3:30 am
>> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." good friday morning. i'm sunny hostin. paula faris is on assignment. >> and i'm rob nelson. in a moment we'll have the latest on the search for the new powerball multi-millionaires, and how a ticket from arizona might have ended up in the state of maryland. everyone playing detective on the story trying to figure out, is that guy the one who won big? >> i'm hating on them. >> we all do. a little jealousy is perfectly understandable. also ahead in the show, 'tis the season for warnings about dangerous toys. the feds just rounded up huge shipments of play things that could have been deadly. >> very important story there. and then the story behind a simple act of kindness that's reverberating around the world. a police officer, a homeless man, and a pair of boots warming so many hearts. and this is just my favorite
3:31 am
story of the day. >> and let's fate it. in a lot of cities, certainly here in new york, we pass homeless people every day just trying to get by. this cop went above and beyond the call of duty and showed an inspiring level of compassion. we'll show you the backstory on that coming up as well. later you figure michael jordan can probably golf anywhere in the world he would like because, you know, he's air jordan after all. but wait till you hear why one golf course just banned him from playing there. that is coming up in "the skinny." wow, anyone bans one of the greatest sports legislates ever. >> that sounds like a bad business decision to me. i don't get it. >> i don't either. we'll explain it. we begin with the $587 million question. just who are the lucky winners of the largest powerball payout ever? it's not me. >> nor me. surveillance video from suburban washington, d.c., shows a man certainly acting like a new multi-millionaire.
3:32 am
the pictures capture him checking his ticket at a gas station in maryland. the clerk and several customers say he had all six numbers. he said he bought the ticket in arizona, but left without revealing his identity. abc's brandi hitt is following the story and has the latest. good morning, brandi. >> reporter: good morning, rob, sunny. we'll soon learn who is holding one of the two lucky powerball jackpot tickets. later this morning the winner from missouri will be revealed. we don't know yet who the instant multi-millionaires are, but two winning tickets were sold in weekend's record $587 million powerball lottery jackpot. one was purchased in arizona. another in missouri. and powerball officials say they haven't come forward to claim their prize yet. the winning ticket in arizona was a $10 quick pick. >> if you are the winner, we ask you to take the following steps. sign your ticket. it's so important to get that ticket signed. of course, keep the ticket safe.
3:33 am
>> reporter: the second winning ticket was sold at this truck stop in dearborn, missouri, 35 miles north of kansas city. >> awesome one of us could touch that ticket, you know? that's what makes it so awesome. >> reporter: norman lingle, chairman of powerball's board of directors, says the winners have two options. they can take the cash immediately or spread it out in payments over time. the jackpot rolled over 16 times without a winner. that's why it got so huge. nearly nine million ticket holders won smaller consolation prizes. if you matched five of six numbers, you'll share in a prize totally more than $130 million. one of the $1 million tickets sold at this store in new york. >> somebody win $1 million in my store. that's a great news. >> reporter: the store owner believes the winner is a member of the community. >> no, i wish i was. you would see me jumping up for joy, praising the lord. >> reporter: ticket sales spiked 500% in arizona because players traveled from california to try and get in on the big prize.
3:34 am
now california will become the 43rd powerball state, thanks to a vote yesterday by the lottery commission. californians can buy their tickets in april. rob, sunny. >> april 8th. to be exact. thank you, brandi, for that report. you can imagine how many tens of millions live in california. now the jackpots will get even bigger with california jumping in. >> why not be a powerball state? >> think about the stat. how crazy people got. at the height of the frenzy the day before, the day of the drawing, they were selling 130,000 ticket as minute out there. >> i bought some. i bought some. did you buy any? >> who couldn't? >> you had to. you have to get wrapped up in it. welcome, california, to the mayhem. all right. other news, the united nations has overwhelmingly approved recognition of a palestinian state. that's a move fiercely opposed by both the u.s. and by israel. however, in the west bank, fireworks went off and the celebration was on. the vote upgraded palestine to a nonmember, nonvoting observer status at the u.n.
3:35 am
the palestinian delegation unfurled its flag right there on the floor of the general assembly. the u.s., israel, and allies oppose the vote saying it was all premature. the american soldier accused of leaking a trove of classified documents to wikileaks will be questioned in a military court again today. private first-class bradley manning took the stand in a pretrial hearing yesterday making his first public statement since his arrest two years ago. manning wants his case thrown out, claiming he suffered unlawful punishment during his first year in detention. there are reports of a settlement in a sex scandal that made international headlines. no details yet on the agreement between former international monetary fund chief dominique strauss-kahn. you guys probably remember this story. as well as that new york city hotel maid who had accused him of sexual assault.
3:36 am
prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against strauss-kahn, but the incident ended his political career as well as his marriage. you remember once that woman came forward and gave that big interview to robin roberts last year, and then several other women came out as well. he kind of never admitted guilt but said it was a moral lapse, whatever happened in that hotel room. so according to some sources there will be another court hearing next week on the matter. >> and i was covering that story and i was trying to remind everyone that when i was analyzing it, that just because the prosecutor says i can't prove this case does not mean it didn't happen. it just means that something fell apart, perhaps the victim has given conflicting testimony, stories, something has changed, but it doesn't mean it didn't happen. this settlement in my view, you know -- >> how much money are we talking? >> talking millions of dollars. >> really? yeah. there's also some sort of confidentiality clause that she can't talk about this ever again. >> but it's safe to say she may not be a hotel maid much longer? >> i think it's safe to say, yes.
3:37 am
>> ah, yes. there we go. well, federal agents seized a shipment full of dangerous counterfeit toys. investigators say the products that arrived on a new jersey dock were loaded with lead paint and banned chemicals. many were not wired properly. others had small parts, posing choking hazards. and all were destined for store shelves and eventually into the hands of children. >> it bothers me when little children have access to lead that's way beyond the limits and also when children get small parts and swallow them and it lodges and asphyxiates them. >> all the seized "made in china" products will be destroyed. parents are warned to be extra vigilant about toys they're buying during this holiday shopping season. those powerful storms pounding the west coast are not letting up this morning. parts of northern california and oregon are feeling the brunt of the torrential rain and gusty winds this morning. by the time it is all over some areas could see up to 20 inches of rain, and higher elevations are expecting more than 8 feet
3:38 am
of mountain snow. i don't know if i have ever said that in my life -- 8 feet of snow. on top of that, flood watches and warnings issued now from san francisco to southern oregon. that storm is also kicking up high surf that is crashing down on just about the entire coast of california. they're now seeing the biggest waves of the season, as high as 20 feet, in fact, and surfers in the southern part of the state were, of course, making the best of it, hanging ten. that's right. yeah. all right. here's the rest of your friday forecast now. we have rain, mountain snow in the pacific northwest and northern rockies. some morning fog and light drizzle in the los angeles area. rain and snow showers around northern michigan, green bay, and milwaukee. and western new york also gets a wintry mix. >> 40s from chicago to new york. mostly 70s across the south. 60s from salt lake city to albuquerque. and warning, this next video may be difficult to watch. a strong man from the nation of georgia, yes, set out for a new world record by pulling a truck
3:39 am
with his ear. the truck weighed more than 8 tons. >> good lord. somehow the team managed to attach a rope to his left ear without it falling off somehow, and he pulled that truck more than 70 feet. the guy said he trained two months, which topped his ear achievement in 2011, pulling a seven-on the military helicopter at the time. >> i'm just so disturbed by this. >> we all have dreams and hobbies. >> i can't. i just -- >> yes, it will be submitted to the guinness world record. not to mention the local chapter of mensa. all right. coming up next, michael jordan's outrage at the country club, and it was not about his golf score. >> hmm. and a new york police officer's act of kindness getting attention worldwide. what an inspiration for us all. you're watching "world news now."
